Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • most of the same advantages enjoyed by the F2F
  • somewhat better gun armament than the F2F


Cons:


  • Most of the same disadvantages that plague the F2F
  • Armament will feel lacking against tier IVs


Performance

This plane is very similar to its parent, the F2F. The transition between the two is a easy one. Most of its characteristics remain the same, though it is slightly faster and has a noticeably higher service ceiling. On top of that, it can carry two 100 lb bombs to take out ground targets. After mounting the bigger 12.7mm machine guns, you will notice a more satisfying punch. But its overall damage is less than the Hawk 75, the tier three american army plane.


Early Research

There are a few options on where to go first: getting the top guns first will noticeably improve the F3F's firepower, while going for the top engine first will give the F3F better airspeed and acceleration. Either path is doable.
